Dubai Museum (Arabic: متحف دبي) is the main museum in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is located in the Al Fahidi Fort (Arabic: حصن الفهيدي), built in 1787 and is the oldest existing building in Dubai.
The museum was opened by the Ruler of Dubai in 1971, with the aim of presenting the traditional way of life in the Emirate of Dubai. When entering, one can see the fort constructed and the various displays that go along with it. From the fort, there is a path to the galleries, which display the general culture of the land, especially in the 1800s. It includes local antiques as well as artifacts from African and Asian countries that traded with Dubai. It also includes several dioramas showing life in the emirate before the advent of oil, in addition to artifacts from recent discoveries as old as 3000 BC.

The old town of Dubai. Reached by bus. The bus travel was an amazing one. Burdubai with the old artifacts preserved. The old things of every aspect is kept in the museum. Spacious and depicting the way of living in the golden old days. The massive changes in the country. Makes us astonished of the hard work. The old fort surrounded with the market. Good place to visit. Useful information. Crowded with tourists yet very clean maintained. Facilities available.

The first floor is interesting, but not incredibly so. We thought the museum was over, so we began to go downstairs in disappointment, only yo find that almost everything was in the basement area. They have quite a few nice exhibits and lots of information to learn about Dubai's history. You end up with a decent amount for the cheap entry fee

A sneak peek in to the life of the Arabs few decades back. From just a dry desert in the early 19th century to being the most cosmopolitan city Dubai had come a Long way and the museum shows how the life was. This isn't a very wheel chair friendly but there's amenities like wash room and seating area. Except a couple of areas the other areas are air conditioned.
